Cuttings from select cultivars are made in May-June and they undergo two growth spurts in our greenhouses. They are usually
ready for planting after 18-24 months. First harvest is typically around 3-5 years after planting.

Cultivation and Agronomy. Bronzewing Farm grows select cultivars of Tasmanian Mountain Pepper (Tasmannia lanceolata).
Cultivation takes time, time, and more time. The plants are very slow growing... At full production we will have 5,000
females bushes producing around 7,500 kg of pepperberries.
We have found the following things essential: Drip
irrigation, the correct pH and nutrient regime, weed matting and bird netting prior to harvest time. Our planting
layout maximises sun exposure to each plant, and we plant at a ratio of 10 females:1 male.
